The Most Beautiful Place On Earth - The Wave

In all my travels I have seen some downright amazing places. But I think The Wave might take the cake as the most beautiful place ever. I was looking through some pictures and realized that I hadn't shared with you some shots from my last trip to The Wave.

It's very difficult to get permits to The Wave. Only 20 people are allowed to visit this little slice of Arizona each day. When my brother-in-law Matt landed an extra ticket I couldn't pass it up. I think this was my fourth trip here, and it is undoubtedly a photographer's paradise.

Forgive me for getting all preachy, but when you're standing in a place like this you can't help but believe that some Divine creator had a hand in this. I think The Wave is God's Picasso. Check out these pictures from the area and I think you might feel the same.






Props to Matt Anderson for snapping these cool running pictures:

  1. Just beautiful... and I agree. I don't know how you can look at the beauty of this world and not see God at work.

  3. Gorgeous! When I visited Utah/Nevada in 2010, I tried to get permits but of course didn't get selected in the lottery. It's still on my list for someday, your pictures just make me want to go there even more!

  7. Absolutely beautiful! This is a place I want to run one day. I always say when I see spectacular places on the trails "how can anyone say there is no God?"
